progress. the big question is, what are the elements of this package and what means do they use to achieve this goal? they have talked about curtailing aid in a number of ways, and there has been talk of an arms in fargo to signal strongly that the violence must stop. at the same time, there is hardening of rhetoric towards the interim government there, placing most of the blame on the government for their recent clashes with protesters and asking the government first to step back and hopefully to restore some order. >> the egyptians haven't taken kindly, have they, too different of sanctions and eight withdrawal -- to the threat of sanctions and aid withdrawal, have they? >> the foreign minister was quoted telling journalists that he regretted the internationalization of what was happening, that he saw this as a purely egyptian matter, and he was unhappy that aid was being used as a pressure point towards the egyptians, saying that the aid has good intentions and credibility and they would be happy to take it, but otherwise, it is a problem for them. the issue here is that they ha
